About Us

The Golden Retriever Club of Victoria was formed in 1967 and has grown from small beginnings to a membership spread throughout Australia and the world. We are an organisation whose shared aim is to promote and encourage interest in the Golden Retriever and to maintain the best features of the breed.

About the Club


The Golden Retriever Club of Victoria is affiliated with DOGS Victoria (The Victorian Canine Association Inc.) which represents the owners and breeders of purebred dogs in Victoria.  DOGS Victoria is a member of the Australian National Kennel Council (ANKC) which is the national body for canine affairs in Australia. The club is also a member of the National Golden Retriever Council which promotes quality breeding and care, training and exhibition of the Golden Retriever.

About the Club


Our club newsletter is provided to members by email (posted copies only if the member has no internet access). It includes feature articles of interest to Golden Retriever owners, member achievements and details of club events. The newsletter along with occasional emails provide the main link between the club and members. This website is also an important source of information for the public and club members. It includes a wealth of information on the Golden Retriever and the club, including photos and results of past club events. New members and visitors are welcome to attend our general meetings. Details of the date and venue of these meetings are published in the newsletter.
